Making machines to process and reuse plastics

F.U.P.P.I (Foundation University Precious Plastics Initiative) is made up of faculty and students of Foundation University. Their project is based on an idea of Dave Hakkens'. The group made machines which shred and turn plastic into other objects. By showing the community the products that these machines can make, they will give people another reason to collect their plastic bottles instead of throwing them away.
